Robert Fulton Fire Company Auxiliary serves 1,510 pork and sauerkraut meals on New Year's Day
Volunteers helping the Robert Fulton Fire Company's Auxiliary celebrate New Year's Day probably set a new record with their annual pork and sauerkraut dinner.
On January 1, 2019, fire company and auxiliary members assisted by members of neighboring fire companies and community volunteers, served 1,510 meals, said auxiliary president Pat Eller.
That's up from the 2018 number of 1,495 eat-in and takeout meals.
"The food was good and there were no problems," Eller said.
Prepping for pork & sauerkraut
This year, New Year's Day falls on a Monday.
That should bring more people to the annual Robert Fulton Fire Company Auxiliary's annual pork and sauerkraut dinner.
"It was down last year because it fell on a Sunday," said auxiliary president Pat Eller. That meant members of the Amish community could not attend or volunteer, she said.
